At the end of 2014, with news of the launch of the new Opti-Tread system for passenger car tyre auditing still fresh, Tyres & Accessories visited Translogik CEO Laren Yeomans at the company’s new Oxfordshire offices in order to find out more about the new product and how it fits into Translogik’s wider strategy.
But first a little background. Translogik is the Tyre Management Solutions division of Transense Technologies PLC, a firm specialising in the development of Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) sensors and related technologies. The Transense Group is comprised of three divisions. IntelliSAW, based in Boston, USA, specialises in wireless temperature measurement used in various industrial applications, SAWSense, the firm’s research & development and technology transfer operation; and Translogik – the part of the business we were in Oxford to learn more about.
Oxfordshire-based Translogik, a trading division of Transense Technologies plc, has announced the extension of its Opti-Tread tyre audit system to the passenger car and light commercial vehicle segments. The company’s US partner, Squarerigger, has launched the new Opti-Tread portable car tyre audit system, and is utilising Snap-On Equipment, a subsidiary of Snap-on Incorporated, as its first major distributor. Snap-on is marketing Opti-Tread through its John Bean brand.
